Tarot Reading

In the picture, a woman in a gray robe faces the rough sea behind her, representing her emotions. She is sitting on a stone bench with white cloth in her eyes, symbolizing her escape from reality. She holds a sword in both hands, crossed in front of her chest, making a state of self-defense. The woman turns her back on the ocean that represents feelings, and her eyes are blindfolded, showing a state of self-deception like plugging the ears while stealing a bell. Her two swords placed in front of her face, that is, crossed in front of her heart, indicating that she has a closed mind. The woman sits still, and the two swords cross diagonally, like two deadlocked efforts, representing an embarrassing interpersonal situation. In addition, it also shows that the person can not make a decision, or even refuses to make a decision.


The Two of Swords suggests that the Conjecture has a closed mind, treats everything negatively and pessimistically, and is taking a resistant and evasive attitude. This card reminds everyone to be honest with their feelings. No matter how things are, we have to accept, do not run away, and do not resist. Take off the blindfold, put down the two swords, things are not really that serious.

The relationship is now in the middle of a cold war. Both of you stick to your own positions, refuse to compromise, and close the door of coordination at the same time, without seeing the truth.

It’s hard to have a new relationship now, because your defensive ability is too strong to accept a new object into your life, so naturally it’s hard to develop a new relationship.

The relationship has ceased to exist except in name. The two of you do not feel a pleasant atmosphere together, but are full of defensiveness and mistrust, feeling powerless to solve problems.

This relationship is totally impossible to get back together. Because there are still many misunderstandings between the two sides that have not been resolved, and you two cann’t let go of the winning mentality, so no one will be the first to put forward the idea of getting back together.

There is no future for this job. The current situation is just to keep calm for a short time, and there will be great changes and risks in the future.

Your academic performance is average, but you are actually not satisfied with yourself. You always want to improve your study, but you just don’t have much mobility.

You value the relationship with your friends very much, but you are stuck between two groups of friends and don’t know how to choose, so you must take evasive strategy to avoid offending either side.

At present, both sides are still angry, and there is no way to solve the problem quickly. Maybe you can try to find a trusted friend to mediate, which may be very effective.

You don’t fully understand your financial situation. There are potential problems being covered up. You should take advantage of this respite to solve the problems.

You feel hurt in your feelings, even feel betrayed by your partner. You don’t want to see him/her at all, and you don’t want to accept any explanation from him/her.

You currently attend few gatherings of friends and rarely take the initiative to make new friends. You may instinctively take a defensive attitude, because you have been hurt by your friend before.

If necessary, you should expose your friend’s lies, and let the truth of the matter come to light. This may lead to a temporary deadlock, but it does help solve the problem.

You’re not in a good financial position right now, so stop fooling yourself. The only way for you to have a chance to improve your financial structure is to find out exactly what’s wrong.
